Jam Chart for Your Pet Cat (6 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
2014-10-31 Las Vegas, NV 4:25 Debut. Following Laura Olsher's narration and "screaming" sound effects, a plucky Trey leads the band into a jam that, prior to "Tube's" resurgence, would not have sounded out of place in a, well, "Tube" jam.
2017-07-14 Chicago, IL 6:34 The jam breaks away from the "Your Pet Cat" theme about 4 minutes in, growing warm and anthemic, then makes a surprising, Fish-led, and nifty -> into "Golden Age".
2017-07-14 Chicago, IL 3:30 -> back out of "Golden Age". Page's electric piano adds some great color to this half of the "Your Pet Cat"/"Golden Age" sandwich. > into the debut of "Leaves".
2021-10-30 Las Vegas, NV 15:16 "YPC" gets its legs fully stretched out for the first time. As this song can, it sounds not unlike a "Tube" jam. This version is replete with great playing from Page on his synth. Around 9:15, Trey leads the band into new territory. His play is deliberate, Mike and Fish push the jam underneath him. Page wails on his keys alongside. The jam reaches a frenzied peak around 13:45 and then goes back into the song proper and then > "Runaway Jim".
2022-02-26 Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico 9:38 -> out of "Twist". Continuing "YPC"'s unexpected run as a jam vehicle, this baby turns into a real Page synthesizer showcase, briefly delving into The Weirdness before Trey's solos bring us back to "YPC" proper.
2022-12-29 New York, NY 6:09 Melds -> in from an exploratory "Fluffhead" jam, and this "YPC" too gets an unusual treatment, as midway through the funk transitions to a pumped-up, increasingly upbeat blowout.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
The jam chart team has highlighted some versions with a yellow background; these are the versions the team believes to be especially improvisational, or otherwise notable.
